Subject: [roots] [ROOTS] Large apex Contd.

Hi all,

As a continuation of the recent thread on Large apex.........
Today's case.
I could have filled this case with apical MTA  downpack and GP back fill

I do not have CaSO4 in my practice and i havent used apical matrix as 
described by Marga.

The apex was approx # 120. used paperpoints for WL determination.
No bleeding from apex after I removed the CaOH (u can see bit of caoh 
in pic 3)

WL was 22mm and I place the dovgan carrier to 20 mm with MTA.  packed with 
hand pluggers and after filling 5mm( may be too much) I place a plugger on 
the MTA and use ultrasonic indirectly to pack it. I use very
less power You can see the MTA being condensed.

Final fill with composite (could have done better) - Venkat

large apex Hi Venkat....... What level of curing intensity is required for curing composite in the deeper portions of the canal - Sachin Hi Sachin, I do not know the answer to your question. I do not use light cure composite in the canal. Its either self or dual cure. Some times resin modified GIC. I will be interested to know (from others on this forum) if there is any specific light that can be used to cure deeper portions of the canal - Venkat Hi Venkat, Nice work! Very clear and sharp pictures. What is your photography setup? - Maarten Thanks Maarten, I use Moller wedel Denta 300 with Nikon coolpix 950. - Venkat
